Hit 95 FM CEO Sanjay Hemady steps down, replaced by Abraham Thomas

Sanjay Hemady has left Delhi-based Hit 95 FM after more than 9 years with the company. He is being replaced as CEO by Abraham Thomas, who had earlier had a stint as COO of Red FM. Hemady confirmed the news to exchange4media.

Hemady started his career with The Indian Express and has had stints with BBC World India, MTV India, CNBC TV 18 and Mid Day. He was formerly associated with Win 94.6 FM, a radio operation established by Gautam Radia, who is also behind Hit 95 FM.

Abraham Thomas had begun his career in the print media with The Indian Express, where he worked his way up to the position of All-India Head of Ad Sales. Television soon beckoned him and he joined Sony Entertainment Network as Director - Sales for SET, MAX and AXN channels. He then moved to MTV Networks, where he headed the revenue function for MTV, Nickelodeon and Vh1.

Thomas had joined Red FM as COO in March 2005.

The change of guard comes as Hit 95 FM readies to transition from an English music programming to a more populist Bollywood and Hindi programming.
